All right, try "Twisted Tunes" by Bob Rivers. It's a song parody site. People who listen to the stuff either really love it or really hate it, but most people are in the first group. It's stuff that might have been on the Doctor Demento show back in the 70s and 80s. Some of the material is REALLY well done and sounds even better than the original song did. The material was played on the radio, so it doesn't get too raunchy. At least I don't remember that it did.

I shared the "Consulting" one with a friend who is a consultant, and the "Cluelessness" one with a friend who runs an IT Help Desk, they thought they were hilarious. I don't think they are that mean, just a bit of a reality check. They play well to the Australian sense of humour. Red heads are normally nicknamed "Blue" here, Tall people either "Lurch", or "Shorty".

On the "I believe that children are the future", I always think that means that we are the present, which is pretty important!

Just listened to "King Trump." Bob Rivers is brilliant!

I checked the site again. If you play a song, scroll down a little and you will see "related" and some more songs. Play any of those, and you will see even more. He used to have an alphabetized list of parodies, but I can't find that any more. He has probably 500 or more parodies of everything from Nat King Cole to Rap. It may take you a while to run into one of my favorites -- or one of yours. I liked "Chipmunks Roasting On An Open Fire" -- a parody of Nat King Cole's "Christmas Song". It even sounds like the original. One I used to play for my students was "Carol Of The Bartenders", a parody of "Carol of the Bells", I think. The chorus was "Don't drink and drive". I played that at the end of class right before the winter break, hoping that it would be remembered even if the math wasn't.
